As erudite and incisive as you would expect Scruton to be. I wish it was available as an ebook, so I could dip into it on the move.

Came to this after reading Evans' Altered Pasts, Counterfactuals being a favourite since my Uni Tutor showed me their value as education as well as entertainment. Like the esteemed Turtledove I am a (modest) student of Byzantine history so on top of the usual rattling read, I nearly choked on my sherry when the junior Russian officers Obolensky and Ostrogorsky turned up; well done Harry. I reckon if you're ever in Sussex I owe Turtledove a drink for the entertainment and Turtletaub another to learn from a basilikoi anthropoi

5.0 out of 5 stars Harald Hardrad, 5 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fascinating. Full of little vignettes, the young Harald picking toy soldiers over his brothers more agrarian choices, St. Olaf looking at the boy and warning that the man would be vengeful. It puts 11thC Scandinavian influence back at the heart of the Europena narrative and my favourite; what become of his battle standard, the Land-Reaver
